I have Adobe Reader 9 installed onto the local hard drives of my workstations. The application launches from local user accounts and functions as expected.
When users are logged in with a network user account Adobe Reader unexpectedly quits at launch. I have laptops that are enabled with Mobile Sync that launch Adobe Reader without any problems. The Mobile Sync accounts have their home folders copied to their hard drives, which sync with their network accounts at scheduled intervals throughout the day.
Prior to using Adobe Reader 9 the default PDF viewer was Apple's Preview app, which launched without incident. We are beginning to use features in Adobe Reader that are complimentary to the PDF's that are received from Acrobat Pro users so I'm not looking to move back to Preview.app. The Acrobat Pro users are not on this network so I haven't tested with the Pro version, I'm downloading the trial version of Pro now.
The ownership of Adobe Reader is set to the user and the correct group - the same as all other applications.
Any ideas of where to go from here?
